A Shining Light?!

In the past, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I've written about how this blog is being used to glorify God.

For sure, if you've been reading for any length of time, you'll be aware that I've mentioned how I hear from readers and friends about how they feel encouraged by reading LwL.  For this, I praise God!

Several months ago, a Facebook (FB) friend of mine began an online magazine for women entitled, God'z Gurlz Bible-based webmag for women..  And, LwL's blog has been featured on a fairly regular basis.  Once again, I must say I am truly thankful to have had LwL included in it.

At this time, I should mention that a couple of years ago, a FB friend, who is the pastor/minister of an online ministry, let me know that he would like it if I made audio files of LwL's blog entries.  He was interested in me doing this, so he could use it on his site, Partakers Christian Podcasts..., which is part of Partakers Wow Ministries (PWM). You'll find it online, and on FB.

Unfortunately, this didn't happen.  Mainly because I didn't know how to do what he needed!

Dave Roberts and his wife Y, will be visiting this fall in USA, while promoting PWM.  They may possibly visit with me, in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, if I'm well enough. 

Dave said he'd show me how to record audio files.  For this, I was thankful.

However, my education on what needs to be done, had to happen sooner than anyone expected!

A few days ago, I posted on FB a request, that if anyone knew how to create MP3 audio files, I would appreciate hearing from them.  Dave responded with a link to a site, to help me.  Thank you, Dave!  I felt blessed receiving your help.

Another friend, J and her husband D, responded in a message, with links that I may need to use.  What a blessing you both have been to me!  Thank you, my friends!

You may be wondering why I was looking to learn how to create MP3 audio files. 

Well, it's because I realized that I needed to be able to learn how to do this.  Not just to satisfy the past request of Dave Roberts of PWM, but to also fulfill the request of another FB friend. 

Suzanne Chin-Taylor, of Sisters For Souls Women's Ministry (SFS), has expanded her ministry to feature a radio programme.

I guess you've figured it out by now that LwL will be featured on the radio programme.  How often, I do not know. 

However, I feel blessed being able to reach out to more people in an effort to not just spread information about Jesus, and preach the gospel when I can, but also encourage those who may be in need of being lifted up.

Thank you, Suzanne.  May God bless you and your ministry efforts to be a shining light to the world.

After all, isn't that what God wants us to do?  Shine our light before men, I mean.

He told us so in Matthew 5:16, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."

It is my desire that LwL continue to encourage people.  It's my desire that God continue to use me and my writings, to this effect.

However, I am thankful that He has provided a way to reach many more people.

Not to glorify me, and my writings.  No, that's not why.

I am thankful that LwL and my writings can be used in a Godly way, to glorify our Father, in heaven.

May many be blessed by being encouraged by what they hear.  And, I pray that if there are any who do not yet know Jesus, as their Lord and Saviour, that they will be saved through this new ministry effort.

If you do not know Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, I would suggest that now is the time of salvation.  We are not guaranteed tomorrow. 

How can this happen?

Believe on the Lord, Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved (Acts 16:31).


Until next time...
